Winter Wonderland

Good morning I'm off work today and working tomorrow; the plan is to spend at least a few hours crafting the weather outside is very cold and dull; a perfect day for staying indoors with the heating on...the food shopping and housework will need to wait. I still haven't unpacked my goodies form last weeks trip to the NEC and having craft withdrawals... firstly though a quick post to share another of my christmas cards. I'm still well ahead despite so little craft time the last few week...starting early was definitely one of my better ideas!...I don't think I've many more I need to make(must count them first!) though I still want to make labels and a few will need boxes made.

This might be hubby's Christmas card...not yet decided. The stamp was a magazine freebie from last Christmas as was the Nitwit papers (there's a similar theme here as always!)...spots and stripes... my two favourites designs although spotty papers I could use on every card I make... I love them big small mix of both! and they work with any type of card you need... perfect! I've added some wooden embellishments some bought,some freebies and the cute tree was from  hand made Christmas gift tags I bought a few years ago... I just had to recycle it...too cute not to. 


Close Up Colouring 
I used the following products-
